Washington - U.S. Congressman Jerry Costello (D-IL), Chairman of the House Aviation Subcommittee, today issued the following statement in response to FAA Administrator Marion Blakey’s comments yesterday regarding airlines needing to do more to improve scheduling and reduce delays:

“While I wish Administrator Blakey would have made these remarks in January, when they might have had some effect on the summer travel season, I guess they are better late than never. As she also noted, the FAA has all the authority it needs to take action in regard to scheduling and delays, as it has done in the past. I have been making similar points all year, and the Aviation Subcommittee will hold another hearing on aviation consumer issues on September 26. Examining what the airlines are doing to address delays and why the FAA has failed to step in to address the scheduling issue will be a major focus of the hearing.”
